to help a charity, how do you know your money is going to be put to good use? in the next hour, we'll bring you drew griffin's investigation into charities and not spending where donors expect. one of the charities under scrutiny is called disabled veterans national foundation, dvnf. remember those initials. there's no sign that the cash donations, more than $56 million they've raised over three years, went directly to the men and women who sacrificed so much in war zones. not one dime of that money. because of drew's reporting, the senate finance committee is now demanding answers from the dvnf. they have launched an investigation into its practices. more on that tonight. drew also uncovered yet another veterans charity, called the national veterans foundation, which is taking donations but using only a very small percentage to actually help vets. there are also charities that claim to help abandoned animals but the money trail led somewhere else entirely. baghdad pups has raised millions to reunite military personnel was the animals they served overseas. but as far as we can tell
as they try to get off are pretty horrifying. they saw the worst of human nature some people told us. people, men shoving women and children out of the way in an effort to get into life rafts. they also say they saw the best in human nature for people trying to do their best. the violinist tried to save as many kids as he could. he ended up dying because of his efforts to save children. >> i'm really looking forward to this piece tonight. thanks so much. a reminder to our viewers that your special runs tonight. it's cnn presents cruise to disaster. 8:00 eastern time. some exclusive new images and details. make sure you tune in. >>> top of the hour now. i'm ashleigh banfield. i'm standing in for brooke baldwin. this is one of the hottest 4th of julys on record. it is steaming out there. extreme heat paralyzing much of the midwest and all the way up to the dakotas too. the heat index racing up into the 115s. the death toll from the heat and related storms now reaching 20. the virginias, in particular, having a terrible time. in some cases police are having to hand out ice. hundreds of thousand
are alleging massive infiltration of the u.s. government by radical islam i can gee haddists. one of those law makers refused to answer questions about her unproven claim that muslim extremists had infiltrated the government and john mccain took an extraordinary step and went on the senate floor calling her out on it. >> when anyone, not least a member of congress, launches degrading attacks against fellow americans on the basis of nothing more than fear of who they are and ignorance of what they stand for, it defames the spirit of our nation and we all grow poorer because of it. >> now, this almost never happens. a sitting member of congress publicly scolding other sitting members let alone members of members of his party. as we've been reporting, they want the inspectors general of five security agencies to look into what bachmann calls the possible deep penetration, her words, of muslim extremists in the government. they're pointing fingers at a particular person, this woman, huma abedin, implying that she may be somehow working on behalf of the muslim brotherhood. again, senator mccain tod
that they would close some of the loopholes that benefit some of the wealthiest americans. and, mitt, could use this as a chance to show how generous you are. it is true that mitt romney gave $7 million to chair i in the two years that i held up. 2010 and 2011. that's 16.34% of his income. it is more than he paid in federal taxes. now, keep the screen up. it's not like he sat there and hoarded the money he didn't pay to uncle sam. he gave enough away to make his rate 31%. greater than the 30% that president barack obama says should be the minimum rate for wealthy americans. so if you look at it that way, mitt's taxes seem to add up just fine. key make the argument that's why he should seize the narrative. it isn't caving to democrats to release them. not only have many in his oem party called on him to do it, it also lets him take control of the conversation. what's wroen with being known as one of the most generous people in the country? great to see all of you. john, let me start with our strike team question. independent political analysts. we polled them and said is mitt romney hurting hims
, the chief of the federal reserve, got more negative on the state of the u.s. economy. >> given that growth is projected to be not much above the rate needed to absorb new entrance into the labor force, the reduction in the unemployment rate seems likely to be frustratingly slow. >> so what's the solution? well, in note after note from wall street economists and traders today, i read something along the lines of this. bernanke will launch another round of easy money to help the economy. it will bring interest rates even lower. it's just a matter of time, he'll do it, he'll do it, don't worry. that's the kind of talk the addicts use. yearning for more of his powerful drug, which is essentially just cheap, easy money. so many were hoping for another shot of the goods today, but while the fed chairman painted a darker picture of the economy, he also made it clear he is not ready -- not ready to hit us with another round of easy money, at least not yet. >> we are looking for ways to address the weakness in the economy, should more action be needed. >> now ben bernanke also said, quote, congress
levels of the u.s. government. even working side by side with secretary of state hillary clinton. the evidence they point to, however, well, it's questionable at best. are calling for an investigation because what she terms the possible deep penetration, her words, of muslim extremists into the u.s. government. in letters to it is inspectors general for five different government security agencies. we've been digging into one of their most serious claims. they point finger, at this woman, huma abadin, secretary of state hillary clinton's deputy chief of staff. implying she may somehow be working on behalf of the muslim brotherhood. now, you would think to make a charge like that for sitting members of congress to make a charge like that, that they would have some actual evidence, right? you would think that. but the truth is they don't have any direct evidence. what they have are allegations of past connections of relatives of hers that are tenuous best. has called for bachmann to produce credible evidence. so bachmann produced a 16 page letter she sent to the congressman. we're g
